From the Sideline

“Yesmin Rivera is Hazen’s starting keeper. He’s played his first few high school contests and has clean sheets — no goals, with eight saves. Yesmin provides solid presence to a good defense with his calm demeanor and take charge attitude. He moved to Hazen last year from Honduras and is a sophomore with a 3.0 GPA.”

— Ken Matthews, head soccer coach
